We understand that choosing the right school for your daughter is one of the most important decisions you will make as a family.
At St Cuthbert’s we know girls – we’ve been educating and growing amazing young women for over a century now and our heritage and values are renowned. So are our academic results, but here excellence isn’t just a grade, it’s about encouraging every girl to achieve her personal best. By choosing St Cuthbert’s you are giving your daughter an advantage she will carry through life.
From age five to 18, we recognise that personal success comes in different shapes and sizes.
At St Cuthbert’s we nurture your little ones through their most precious, formative years and foster a life-long love of learning. Your daughter’s Junior School years will be filled with fun and wonder as they begin to discover themselves and the world around them.
The journey through Senior School is one of the most important and exciting times of your daughter’s life. At St Cuthbert’s she will be noticed, inspired and supported so she leaves our care with self-confidence, life-long friendships and the tools for success.
Nothing equips girls for the future better than Kahunui – our exclusive outdoor education and life skills centre in the Bay of Plenty – offering a unique and transformative experience for all Year 10 girls.
Getting to know each other is the best way to help you decide if our school is the right fit for your daughter and family. We warmly welcome the opportunity to share the St Cuthbert’s experience with you.
